Double Dragon IV (Japanese: ダブルドラゴン Ⅳ?)[2] is a beat 'em up video game in the Double Dragon series planned for release in January 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows.

Gameplay Edit

In addition to a story mode, the game includes a two-player duel mode and a tower battle mode.[3][4]

The duel mode's versus screen.

Double Dragon IV features Story Mode, Duel Mode and Tower Mode. Duel Mode turns Double Dragon into a fighting game, with new characters being unlocked by playing through the story – including the bulky, bald, behemoth Abobo. Tower Mode is as it sounds: defeat rooms of enemies to climb the tower, unlocking new characters to play as along the way.

Plot Edit

After the defeat of the Black Warriors in Double Dragon II, Billy and Jimmy Lee look to spread their Sōsetsuken martial art by establishing dojos around the country. However, they soon face a new threat in a gang called the Renegades, who have teamed up with the Black Warriors to put an end to Billy and Jimmy once and for all.

In addition to helping reestablish the Double Dragon canon, the new official website also goes over some of the game modes and features of Double Dragon IV.

Development[edit] Edit

Unlike earlier games in the series, this sequel is developed by Arc System Works, who bought the series rights in 2015. Several series developers continued to the project, including the original director, character designer, composer, and programmer.[5][6] The game was announced in late December 2016 via a gameplay trailer. GameSpot had expected a graphical update, similar to Double Dragon Neon, but the new sequel's gameplay and graphics are more akin to the ports made for the Nintendo Entertainment System, with several character sprites taken directly from those titles.[3] The new website provides scant Double Dragon IV story hints. Players can expect both Billy and Jimmy to be back with plenty of the memorable Black Warriors enemy types also returning. There don’t appear to be any alternative protagonists like Chin Seimei and Yagyu Ranzou in Double Dragon III, but there is an image with dialogue teasing Billy and Jimmy traveling to San Francisco.

The game is planned for release on January 30, 2017, for PlayStation 4 and January 31 for Microsoft Windows.[1]

    Unfortunately the new website provides scant Double Dragon IV story hints. Players can expect both Billy and Jimmy to be back with plenty of the memorable Black Warriors enemy types also returning. There don’t appear to be any alternative protagonists like Chin Seimei and Yagyu Ranzou in Double Dragon III, but there is an image with dialogue teasing Billy and Jimmy traveling to San Francisco.

In addition to helping reestablish the Double Dragon canon, the new official website also goes over some of the game modes and features of Double Dragon IV. Story Mode is a given, but Double Dragon IV will also feature both Duel Mode and Tower Mode. Duel Mode turns Double Dragon into a fighting game, with new characters being unlocked by playing through the story – including the bulky, bald, behemoth Abobo. Tower Mode is as it sounds: defeat rooms of enemies to climb the tower, unlocking new characters to play as along the way. Characters  ;
